G13 Skunk brings together two revered cannabis strains. The Skunk element is already very well-known and hardly needs an introduction here. G13 on the other hand is a strain that is swathed in myth and legend, supposedly originating in a US research facility and smuggled out by a technician.
G13 Skunk is an Afghan/Skunk crossed with a Skunk #1 and is highly recommended for medicinal purposes. It is a mostly indica strain with little stretch during flowering. For this reason growers should be prepared to veg. for longer than they might normally in order to get plants of a decent size. Indoors it is a first rate choice for SoG (sea of green). Most indoor plants will only take about 7 weeks to finish flowering with some pheno-types taking a week to ten days longer than this. Yields are very good at 500 - 650 gr/m2. Greenhouse-grown plants will produce about 500 gr/plant and will be ready in September in northern Europe. Due to the density of the buds care will need to be taken and plants closely monitored as they close in on harvest time in case of mould problems which can affect this marijuana variety. For this reason it is a tricky plant to grow outdoors unless the climate is dry and reliable with low humidity.
These plants have an incredibly luxuriant glossy green colour and its leaves have serrated edges which is quite a distinguishing feature. It is a good therapeutic strain for a range of ailments and symptoms including, but not necessarily limited to, pain management, Multiple Sclerosis, arthritis and depression.

About Mr Nice Seedbank
Howard Marks and Shantibaba, the men who created Mr Nice Seedbank, met during the late 1990's while living and working in Holland. In 1995, Shantibaba had set up the Greenhouse Seed Company. Coincidentally, at the same time, Howard was released from a lengthy imprisonment in the USA.
During the next few years, the two became very good friends and discussed the possibility of working together. They decided to start a seed company to help growers throughout the world.
In 1998, Shantibaba sold his interest in the Greenhouse Seed Company and, as a sole trader, set up Mr Nice Seedbank, which has always been and remains a Dutch company. He established Mr Nice Seedbank, with its forty parent plants, to make strains and seeds available to all levels of growers in order to help them spread the genetic diversity of cannabis.
Rather than joining any seed companies' bandwagon by merely chasing money, Mr Nice Seedbanks dedicated their efforts to make old and new world seeds available for growers. They did not care how many seeds they sold or whether they had a profile in the limelight.
In 1999, Dutch law changed and no longer permitted the production of seeds. However, selling seeds imported from another country remained legal. Mr Nice wanted to fulfil their project without breaking any country's laws. Accordingly, they moved growing operations to Switzerland, where the law permits growing cannabis for seed production. Many Dutch seed companies lost plants, mother rooms, and seed crops, but in Switzerland, Mr Nice seed production blossomed.
Mr Nice Seedbank has consistently maintained a visible presence on various helpdesks, directly interacting, testing, and researching with the growers of its products. Their aim is to help people, wherever they are, who have worked or intend to work with any of their product.
